Three women were arrested early this morning after an argument turned physical at a Bridgeport apartment, police said.
Kiiarah Sharpe, 20 and Octavia Jordan, 23, both of Waterbury, and Taquana Hendricks, 20, of Bridgeport, were arrested around 2:30 a.m. Monday following a violent encounter at an apartment on the 300 block of Remington Street, police said.
According to police, the victim had invited the three into her apartment, but asked them to leave after an argument flared up. The suspects refused to go, and Sharpe said she’d leave when she felt like it, police said.
Sharpe attacked when the victim tried to push her out the door. Hearing the commotion, the victim’s brother woke up and rushed to help his sister. According to police, Sharpe then said to another suspect, “go get your gun.” Jordan retrieved a handgun and pointed it at the victims, police said.
The victims ran back inside and no shots were fired, authorities said.
Police tracked down the suspect’s car on Boston Avenue. They recovered the gun and a bag of ammunition.
Sharpe was charged with third-degree assault, third-degree strangulation and disorderly conduct. Her bond was set at $5,000.
Jordan was charged with second-degree threatening, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct and is being held on $10,000 bond.
Hendricks was charged with disorderly conduct. Her bond was set at $500.
